“No one is talking about taking your guns.” Yes, they are.
By G. McWhirter
We all have friends and family that we love and care about, yet we don’t always agree with. I have friends and relatives who identify as liberal and we don’t agree on all things when it comes to politics, and that’s ok. We don’t have to. We live in the United States of America, the greatest country in the history of mankind. And as a libertarian, I firmly agree that every one of us have the right to believe and think how we want. However, the gun control debate has risen its ugly head after another tragedy that has taken the lives of our countrymen. And in doing so my liberal friends have begun to come out of the woodwork advocating for more firearms regulations. They frequently finish their pitch with “no one is talking about taking your guns.” And that’s where we have to stop the conversation, because this is simply not true.
The left has come out en masse in the last 5 days with one thing in mind, to dismantle the idea of the armed American. The media has been flooded with talk of assault weapons ban, mental health evaluations, and passing no fly no buy. However, the most concerning is the frightening push to repeal the second amendment. Leftist social media, websites, and the MSM have come out to denounce the second amendment and advocate for its repeal. The links below (all of which were published in the last 72 hours), go from calls to repeal the second amendment to calling it “The Cancer in the Constitution.”
The next time your liberal loved one says “no one is talking about taking your guns” show them this post, and these links, and just maybe, they will see what we’ve been talking about for so long.
To the ultra-leftists trying to repeal the second amendment, I say to you, even if you get your repeal passed, and even if you get it ratified, good luck getting it enforced. Those kinds of laws are exactly what Oath Keepers was formed to protect against, and we will.

Declaration of Orders We Will NOT Obey
Recognizing that we each swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and affirming that we are guardians of the Republic, of the principles in our Declaration of Independence, and of the rights of our people, we affirm and declare the following:
1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.
The attempt to disarm the people on April 19, 1775 was the spark of open conflict in the American Revolution. That vile attempt was an act of war, and the American people fought back in justified, righteous self-defense of their natural rights. Any such order today would also be an act of war against the American people, and thus an act of treason. We will not make war on our own people, and we will not commit treason by obeying any such treasonous order.
Nor will we assist, or support any such attempt to disarm the people by other government entities, either state or federal.
In addition, we affirm that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military power of the people so that they will, in the last resort, have effective final recourse to arms and to the God of Hosts in the face of tyranny. Accordingly, we oppose any and all further infringements on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. In particular we oppose a renewal of the misnamed “assault-weapons” ban or the enactment of H.R. 45 (which would register and track gun owners like convicted pedophiles).
